Delighted to start #16DaysOfActivism

 by advocating to the participants of the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies NILDS, United Nations Development Program UNDP and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women UNWomen Capacity Building Workshop for Female Legislators and Female Politicians on Lawmaking and Lobbying, at Abuja today.

It is indeed a very timely initiative, as today, November 25th, marks the start of annual activities to highlight Ending Violence Against Women and Girls.

As a Pioneer Member and Steering Council Member of the UN Women’s African Women Leaders Network Initiative, I am encouraged that this workshop will inspire new energy and technical skills to accelerate working together for Gender Equality, namely:

– Women’s Political Participation
– Women’s Economic Empowerment
– Women Peace And Security and Humanitarian Action
– Ending Violence Against Women

The WBFA advocates for gender and generational equality, the status of women, children and families in Africa, improved resources and support. Our women, girls, and gender development policy goals are integrated across programmatic interventions for every woman, child and adolescent, to progress the rights and rise of every woman and girl to agency, autonomy, safe spaces and leadership, towards attaining the UN Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security.

Enacting gender sensitive legislation and domestication of international conventions, statutes and promotion of women participation in politics and governance in Nigeria is on the front burner of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls for a just and fair society – so in my goodwill keynote delivered by Special Representative Dr Buki Shittu-Muideen, I heartily commended NILDS, UNWOMEN and UNDP Nigeria focus on strengthening the technical capacity of female legislators and female politicians
